A standalone app store and additional health software are revealed by the watchOS 6 leak


Leaked information from a Bloomberg story suggests that watchOS 6 will include a few significant improvements as it nears Apple’s WWDC 2019 keynote.

The yearly developer conference gets under way on June 3 at the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California. Apple often uses it to demonstrate new software updates to its ecosystem, including tools, apps, and features. Over 1,000 Apple engineers will be available for attendees to speak with and advise. New iterations of iOS, macOS, watchOS, and tvOS are anticipated this year.

A new app store and new health apps are revealed by a watchOS 6 leak.

The forthcoming Apple Watch operating system has already had some information leaked. According to reports, new watch faces, complexities, and apps will be available via a standalone app store.

In 2017, Apple added LTE connectivity to the Series 3, but customers were still required to download and install apps using a companion app on their iPhone. According to those acquainted with the plans, this will soon change and you will be able to download apps directly to your watch through the App Store.

Additionally, Apple is releasing new software. Some health-related apps, a calculator, voice memos, and books for listening to audiobooks on your wrist are included in this. These upgrades will increase the watch’s use and reduce the need to utilize your phone for routine, everyday chores.

A menstrual cycle monitoring tool called Cycles and a pill reminder app called Dose will be made available as part of the health updates. When watchOS 6 is released, it will automatically install on the Apple Watch. A week ago, Garmin released its own version of the female health tracking app that Fitbit had previously introduced. Apple has just joined the bandwagon.

In 2018, Apple improved its app complications, and in 2019, it will do the same. The updated versions will display information about external noise, rain, audio book status, hearing aid battery life, and other things.

More watch faces are also to be expected. This contains two new “X-Large” watch faces, two new “Gradient” watch faces, a “California” classic watch face that combines Roman numerals and Arabic numerals, and a “Solar Analog” watch face that resembles a sundial.

The autumn operating system upgrade will include all of this and more. At the WWDC, the specifics will be made known.

But if you were planning to go, reconsider. Because of the high demand, Apple typically only provides tickets through a lottery system. The 2019 tickets cost $1,599 for those who received admission. The registration period ended on March 20th, but there’s always next year if you’re a developer. Of course, the rest of us may watch the event live online.
